Aim & Scope
Activities, Adaptation, & Aging is the working tool for activity directors and all health care professionals concerned with the enhancement of the lives of the aged. Established as the primary journal for activity professionals, Activities, Adaptation & Aging provides a professional outlet for research regarding the therapeutic implications of activities on quality-of-life issues and overall life satisfaction for the elderly. The journal examines a wide spectrum of activities: activity-based intervention for persons with dementia; activity determinants in independent-living elderly; activity implications in a variety of settings; activity participation patterns; and activity implications for everyday practice.
The journal addresses such important topics such as evidence-based practice, evaluation, assessment of psychosocial history, culture and its influence on meaningful activity, activities and caregivers, volunteerism, and successful aging. Activities, Adaptation & Aging fills an important quality-of-life niche in the field of gerontology. It is a highly regarded journal that continues to provide timely and useful research, case studies, and program evaluations
